影響頂尖名校錄取機率!你與 Dream School 的距離

For students thinking of applying to top colleges, one of the most curious statistics would be admissions chances and enrollment rates.

 

Generally speaking, there is no set barrier of entry; there are several factors to consider. Furthermore, the ever-changing admissions trends are even more impacted this year due to the emergence COVID-19.

 

In light of this uncertainty, our team has put together some tips for you in order to maximize your admissions chances and leave a lasting impression on admission officers!

 

💡 Extracurricular activities are about depth, not breadth

 

Less is more – what’s important for extracurriculars is not the amount of activities you participate in, but is demonstrating passion, consistency, and greater purpose.

 

💡 Gain work experience and familiarize yourself with the industry

 

Internships are not only a great way for you to gain valuable hands-on experience, but also to expand your horizons and sharpen your business acumen.

Through engaging in real-life work experiences, you are able to demonstrate industry knowledge and show that you are passionate about the field you plan on pursuing.

 

💡 Gain research experience

 

Independent research and strong analytical skills are key skills to gaining an edge in admissions. Engaging in research is a good way to show your curiosity in a certain topic and demonstrate a high caliber of research abilities.

 

💡 Volunteering and giving back to the community

 

Colleges want to find students to engage with and contribute to the community around them. Engaging in volunteer work is a great way to meaningful causes with your heart for service.

The key point is not about the number of hours or scale of your activities, but about how your activities connect to causes you care about.

 

Last but not least, make sure you highlight your unique personal traits!

 

When applying to college, make sure you carefully consider your past experiences, activities, awards, and pick out ones you think create the most unique and compelling narrative.

無論是在考慮申請頂尖名校,或是已經在準備的過程中了,學生最想知道的事情不外乎就是錄取機率了。

 

具體來說,申請名校沒有一定的標準,考量的因素眾多,申請的變化量也非常大,加上今年疫情肆虐,許多學校也調整了入學規定,學生本身是處在一個不斷變化成長的環境。

 

然而,在準備申請時仍有幾個建議提供給你,這些將大大影響你的錄取機率,讓招生官對你更了解、更印象深刻!

 

💡 課外活動重質不重量

 

課外活動並不是以量取勝,需與自己的專業興趣相關、有持續發展性,或是對社會是否存在可實現的意義。

即使是小型的、課外的,只要是對自己有意義、長期努力在經營的,都是非常重要的活動。

 

💡 爭取實習機會,熟悉產業

 

豐富的實習經歷能讓你提早熟悉產業的工作內容,不但有額外的機會尋找資源加強實力,更能跳脫學校的同溫層,拓展視野。

透過實習,你能向學校證明對該領域的專業與熱情。對申請是一個很重要的加分項。

 

💡 優秀的學術研究活動

 

優秀的分析、研究能力也是錄取頂尖名校的關鍵,這能展現出你對所學領域的投入熱情以及研究精神,向學校證明你具備高水準的研究能力。

 

💡 志工服務,利用所學回饋社會

 

利用自身的專長與所在的環境有所連結,並用行動來學習與回饋社會,這個本質是學校所重視的。

重要的不是你做了多少的時數,參加多少規模大的志工活動,學校更是想看到你自身的成長。

 

最後,請積極展現個人亮點!

 

在準備申請的過程中,請仔細回顧過去參與的學習、活動、獎項並精選出其中最能凸顯你個人特質及專業的部分。

 

美國頂尖名校在錄取學生時會在他們身上尋找亮點,請盡情展現自己的特別之處,不要放棄任何會影響你錄取機率的訊息!
